Abstract:     
One of the biggest challenges for our criminal justice system today is dealing with post-conviction challenges in state and federal courts. In order to effectively and fairly address these challenges, we need changes in our post-conviction discovery, investigation and litigation procedures. Current procedures often choose finality over accuracy. This paper suggests reforms, including a move toward a more collaborative post-conviction process.
